DUBAI, Oct 24 (Bernama) — After more than 40 days in the police lock-up here, PECD LLC senior manager Zainal Adnan Khairuddin was released when the court dropped the case against him following a settlement between the parties concerned.

Hari ke-45!

DUBAI, Sept 23 (Bernama) — A senior official of Peremba Construction Dubai Branch has been in the police lockup here for the last two weeks after he was detained for allegedly signing two company cheques which were subsequently dishonoured.

Zainal Adnan Khairuddin, 39, had signed the cheques in his capacity as the company’s senior manager (finance).

He was the second signatory of the two cheques of one million dirham (about RM938,000) each.

His case was brought before the Dubai Court here today but was postponed to October 16 pending a settlement between Peremba and Kele Contracting, a manpower supply company hired by Peremba, which had cashed the cheques.

Zainal Adnan’s lawyer, Ali Mohammad Tamim, said it was a criminal offence here to sign cheques “without any funds”.

“It is considered bad intention. However, Zainal Adnan is innocent as he signed the cheques only as an employee of the company. He is just an employee. It is the company which is responsible,” he told Bernama here after the case was mentioned in court.
